Specifically, this means that Microsoft;s hardware would work with the software of other companies and that other developers could create their own app stores for the HoloLens stores where Microsoft presumably wouldn;t get a cut of every sale. "The walls that make our world feel divided make our world feel broken, " Alex Kipman, Microsoft 's technical fellow for artificial intelligence and mixed reality who helped invent HoloLens, said at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. "As members of the mixed reality community, we want the future to be open open to your creativity, open to your ideas, open to your vision. Now imagine what we could accomplish as a mixed reality community when barriers are removed and we transition from walled gardens to a communal garden. "

  • James Franco and Anne Hathaway host the Oscars®

    Hathaway might be ready to joke about it now, but her time hosting the Oscars in 2011 wasn't always something she could laugh about. Hathaway and Franco's job co hosting has been torn apart over the years, and history hasn't been all that kind to it either. At the time, The Hollywood Reporter called it "spectacularly unwatchable. " And even though most critics, as noted by THR, gave Hathaway credit for at least trying to be entertaining, a stark contrast to Franco who seemed to be doing the absolute least, the 2011 Oscars is widely seen as the worst Oscars in recent memory. Of course, that all may change tonight. Just as the 2011 Oscars did by hiring two actors as hosts, the 2019 Academy Awards is also bucking tradition, this time foregoing the host altogether. So, no matter how self deprecating Hathaway's throwback post is, it might not actually be true after tonight.
